Jumping into Animas River in Colorado at Bakers Bridge

Jumping into Animas River in Colorado at Bakers Bridge

Jumping off a cliff into a river!

Me and Jessica and the dogs had some free time on a rural land shoot weekend in Navajo Dam, New Mexico, and saw that Durango, Colorado was not that far away. We took the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk up a scenic highway, and kept on going right through Durango finding first a natural hot spring, and then later a crowd gathered around this small bridge. Not until you get up on the bridge do you have any idea the amazing views of the Animas River from it, and you really get a better look at the beauty of this area from the drone’s eye view! The crowd there, however, were mostly to watch people jump off the cliff bank 30+ feet into the Animas River below! It was tricky to time out and capture with the drone, but in the video you can see two people making the plunge!

Pinkerton Hot Springs in Colorado

Pinkerton Hot Springs in Colorado

On a recent multi-day rural land real estate photo shoot in Navajo Dam, New Mexico, there was free time one day for an afternoon trip up to nearby Durango, Colorado where Jessica and I pretty much stumbled upon Pinkerton Hot Springs.  Right on the side of the highway sits this natural hot spring that you can take your shoes off and dip your toes in the warm water burbling up from somewhere way down below.  Usually these natural hot springs require a hike or at least a small trek to reach.  This one though, you can drive right up to!  It's a small hidden gem worth stopping for if you are ever near or in Durango, Colorado!
